Why So Serious?

Duzan Domestica, however, had been too long in this line of business to miss why this green-skinned, strange looking girl was there in his clinic. Despite her emotionless face and heavy makeup, her smile lines were more than visible. Fanning out at the corner of her lines were several small wrinkles resembling a cat’s whiskers or a crow’s feet.

He reflected for a while. Then, “Smile,” he sighed and issued the one command that only he could give without risking his life.

He belonged to a family of Sufis. If rumours were to be believed, Jahandad was 100 years old in reality, out of which only…

Dream! What Dream?

His father had forced him to become an engineer. At least that was how he liked to tell the tale. That earned him different responses from people. Most of them were sympathetic---outwardly! Otherwise, they were only hiding different judgements behind, "Aw, I am sorry. It must be hard to live somebody else's dream." The real…

Wither Away!

  "Pressure makes things grow more"   Is a ridiculous myth! That's a terrible bore. The flower could have Lasted a little longer, had the tools Blasted the warmonger. Instead, they played Filthy games With the hues and shades, of the colorless petals. The pressure to bloom In fifty seconds. Was on the bud. For…
